Oh Boy!

While correcting the Math pages today I had a "special" experience. In my classroom, the children stand in line, holding their math pages, waiting for me to correct them and do a little individual assessment on the go.

Things were going well when, what to my wondering ears should hear...

"OH MY HELL!!"

I looked up and asked the boy to which this phrase was directed, "Did she just say what I think she just said?"

Boy: She said "Oh my h-e-l-l."

Me: Cybil????

Cybil: What?? A person can't say "Oh my HELL at school?" That's dumb.

Me: Oh honey. Come with me.

A call was made to her dad. During the call she happened to say "So, you mean we can't say "Oh my Hell at school OR oh my God? That's so stupid." (We had already had a talk a couple of weeks ago about the second offense.)

LATER:

At the end of the day, I went outside to her mom's car an knocked on her window. When she rolled it down I said "Oh my Hell. I wish you'd stop swearing at home." She laughed. She said she was sorry. Ya...right.




(Yes, I said "Hell" four times in this post...make that five!)

Oh.MY.Hell!
You crack me up! At least your days are anything, but dull...

BTW- Guess what I'm watching...Sybil. Yep, the one with 16 different personalities, kind of like your Cybil. ;)

A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class, because it was a
weapon of math disruption.

Bruce, that's lame.

Tami, I'm going to teach that phrase to Jill & see if I get a call from school.

NATALIE!!! You took my line! It won't seem as funny if I say it now too!

Oh. What the hell. Oh. My. Hell!




P.S. My favorite is: Dammit to hell

Kinda redundant I know but it sure feels good when it comes out....

Well, okay - it's not a dirty word. It's not a blasphemous word. You're not in school. Yeah - say it when you see it, woman!

Oh yes, I loved Rod. He's my first cousin. I used to babysit for him regularly. Thanks for reading my blog. It's nice to know someone does.
